The Story of Don Pedro's

In 1992, two cousins, Damien and Nicholas, set off from Los Angeles on a surf and culinary adventure. Making their way south, they stumbled upon a diamond-in-the-rough called Sayulita. With one phone line in town at the Paleteria and hardly any other services, Sayulita was a dusty fishing village that time seemed to have forgotten. Tucked into a jungle-clad bay with a consistent rivermouth break, Sayulita's serene natural beauty and the warm hospitality of the locals impressed the two travelers, so much that they decided to stay. And thus a dream began to crystallize - to build a world-class restaurant on the beach of this little paradise. Like many passionate dreamers, they were laughed at, told it would never work. But true to the old adage "if you build it, they will come", they did... and the people came. Over fifteen years later, they keep coming back.

Giving Back

From the onset of their experience in Sayulita, Damien and Nicholas have always believed in improving the quality of life for the locals who call this place home. They financed the restoration of the malecon and fortification of the beach area. They have repeatedly contributed to the development of the growing town's sewer system and financed upgrades to the local power grid. Most importantly, Don Pedro's has employed at least one member of every founding family of the village. Don Pedro's continues to be the largest employer in Sayulita.

Nicholas Parrillo
Executive Chef /Co-owner

Chef Parrillo received formal training at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and matriculated at the Culinary Institute of America. He further honed his skills in fine establishments such as Rex IL Ristorante of Los Angeles, Prego's of Beverly Hills, Rebecca's of Venice Beach and I Cugini of Santa Monica. For Chef Parrillo, Don Pedro's is a dream come true - a culinary laboratory where the freshest local ingredients and Mexican flavors meet classical Mediterranean and cutting-edge Californian techniques to create a distinctly unique dining experience. Chef Parrillo, his wife and two children live on a ranch just outside Sayulita where he grows many of his special organic ingredients.

Damien Porter
Executive Director/Co-owner

Upon graduating UC Berkeley in 1992, Damien set off on a journey to ride the ultimate wave. What started as an "Endless Summer" surf safari turned into a visionary enterprise in a foreign land. Throughout his extensive global travels, Damien was always drawn to the local cultures that embraced him. In Sayulita, the genuine hospitality of the village convinced him of the tremendous potential for a world-class gourmet experience just steps away from the surf. Damien lives in Sayulita where he oversees several businesses and still surfs any chance he gets. Damien, Nicholas and the Don Pedro's family welcome you to enjoy this little paradise on earth.

We ate lunch at Don Pedro's in Sayulita at the recommendation of our tour driver. We're so glad we stopped in for a bite as this place was on point in every way. The atmosphere was very nice as we overlooked the Pacific ocean and the ceiling fans helped keep it breezy and cool. It was very casual and the service was nice. Our drinks were delicious and the tuna was superb. The prices were also very affordable. Highly recommend dining at Don Pedro's if you are in the area.

Great food and location
My girlfriend and I used a couple of sun loungers on the beach. It cost 200 Peso for two chairs for the entire day. They did ask that we only eat and drink food from their restaurant which we were fine with.

And boy, the food was good. We had the Shrimp Tacos and they were the best we had in Mexico. We did not eat inside, but the food we had was great and the sun loungers were perfect, with a great location.

Great food, central beach location, definitely worth a visit
We ate at Don Pedro's several times, for both lunch and dinner. Some of my favourites were the shrimp tacos, the Margarita pizza, and the olive tapenade. On one of the evenings they had a flamenco guitarist and singer for entertainment, and another night they had a Cuban band and we did salsa dancing. They serve a large assortment of dishes. The place is very clean, including bathrooms, and I found the service to be good.
